“She added that 307,687 beneficiaries have been recorded under the Artisan & Transport Scheme. Which means that about 25,313 beneficiaries are yet to benefit under the track.

“Similarly, 82,491 Nigerians have so far benefited from the General MSME Grants Scheme, while 17,468 have so far benefited under the Guaranteed Offtake Scheme. This also means that 17,509 and 82,538 beneficiaries are yet to emerge under the General Grant and Guaranteed Offtake Scheme respectively.
